Methodology of exhibition space automatic translate
The exhibition is an integral part of the special project «Practice / Space», presented by the Institute for Contemporary Art (IPSI) at the IV Moscow Youth Biennale of Contemporary Art.
OPENING: July 8 at 19.00, DATES: July 9 - July 23, SITE: Nagornaya Gallery / Remizova Street, 10, ARTIST: Ekaterina Lupanova, EXHIBITION CURRY: Nadezhda Busheneva.
The «Practice / Space» project of the Institute for Contemporary Art Problems consists of two personal exhibitions of graduates - Ekaterina Lupanova’s «Methodology of Exhibition Space» in the gallery «Nagornaya» and «Autonomous Replica» by Jan Tamkovic in the artist’s workshop in TTI FACTORY.
Young authors, many of whom are among the most active representatives of the Moscow scene, present projects in which the appeal to the specific and local creates conditions for the reflection of globally significant processes - such as: the role of art in modern society, the impact of communication technologies on culture and social interactions.
Commentary of the curator and artist Stas Shuripa: «The project of Ekaterina Lupanova» Methodology of exhibition space «is built around experiments with conventional exhibition space. The focus of the artist’s attention is the policy of representation and the conditions for the existence of art in social systems. The exhibition hall appears as a medium of communication, in which society is included, its ideas about itself and the expectations of the artist’s figure. The lexicon of social interactions, embodied by works of architecture and design, becomes a source of material for constructing situations in which the very possibility of aesthetic experience is the subject of critical observation. Examining the erased, subtle signals that pervade public spaces, Ekaterina Lupanova makes visible those schemes and scenarios that give us the opportunity to see the world around us in the familiar system of sociocultural coordinates.
In the installation of «Autonomous Replicas» by Jan Tamkovich, stories about the sources of the avant-garde and modern logistics systems form networks of associations that masquerade in the atmosphere of the postindustrial elegy. The artist transforms the room of his studio, located in the Center of Creative Industries Fabrica, into a rich environment with meanings that open up opportunities for unexpected reconstructions of selected moments of art history. Tamkovich endows the rights of the narrator with this multi-layered space; filled with traces of diverse phenomena and forces, it not only becomes a machine of interpretation, but also acquires features of subjectivity. The staging of stories from the history of modernism, the preference of cubist or fauvist visual idioms serve as tools for studying the role that view and perception play in the life of modern societies. «

The Institute of Contemporary Art is one of the leading universities in Moscow, where young artists can get a systemic idea of what contemporary art is, how it is arranged and, most importantly, how to become an artist today. The project «New Artistic Strategies» continues the fifteenth year and has already had a certain impact on the artistic situation. So, many artists who appeared in recent years on the Moscow art scene are graduates of the «New Art Strategies». they are often invited to participate in the Venetian Biennale of Contemporary Art, as well as actively participate in exhibitions in Russia and abroad.
Gallery «Nagornaya» began its work in 1978. This is the first state gallery in Moscow. Initially, the gallery showed mostly academic painting (social realism, critical realism, «severe style», «left» MOSKH), but over the years the focus shifted towards the use of traditional pictorial techniques in contemporary art and the interaction of academic painting of the XX-XXI centuries and non-living types of contemporary art, such as installation, performance, multimedia, photography.
